Default So the Uk has only one major sporting chain remaining

So JJB is in administration, and with that sports direct gains a monopoly in the high street for sports gear, while it offers great value, i can't help but feel that specialist sports stores will struggle even more, for example where I live in nottingham there is only one pro shop, way outside the city centre, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for those who's sport is even more marginal than tennis, (badminton sqaush etc) Sports direct seems to be swallowing up independent retailers...
